Recorded live at the Bayreuth Festival in Summer 2009, this production marks the beginning of an exciting new long-term partnership between the Bayreuth Festival and Opus Arte. The prestigious music festival takes place each year in Northern Bavaria, Germany in a theatre for which Wagner personally supervised the design and construction. The festival has become a pilgrimage destination for Wagner enthusiasts, who often have to wait up to ten years to obtain a ticket! Katarina Wagner, the great-granddaughter of Richard Wagner, is currently co-director of the festival together with her sister Eva Wagner-Pasquier.

Tristan und Isolde was first performed in 1865 and provided inspiration to many composers, including Mahler, Strauss, Szymanowski and Berg. It is widely acknowledged as one of the peaks of the operatic repertoire and has been performed regularly since is premiere. This production by renowned director Christoph Marthaler stars leading Wagner exponents Robert Dean Smith and Iréne Theorin in the title roles, and they are supported by the Bayreuth Festival Chorus and Orchestra conducted by Peter Schneider.
